Forum: etree Subject: Changed username, can't edit old shows

Hi, I tried a search on this subject but didn't find any answers...I changed my username a few months back(just edited it..didn't create new account or anything), and I now notice I cannot edit any of the shows I uploaded under my old username.
Is there any way to consolidate the older shows for use with this new name..? or if I need to edit one of those, can I simply temporarily change my name back to my old one?

Any info you can shed on the subject would be much appreciated...thanks

maybe this will help

If you would like to have your items' ownership transferred to a new email address, send an email to iasupport AT archive DOT org from your OLD email address (the one you want to get rid of - that's how we know you own the items) and tell us which address you'd like to change it to."

Doh!!!

Yeah, sorry, I forgot I did change my email address as well, didn't even think about that aspect...plus I only searched the forum, not the faq.

Thanks much

Just to update this, I have since sent 2 emails to iasupport... from the email I uploaded my older shows with, to get them switched over to my new username/email. How long should/could this take?

I still cannot edit those shows, now the problem is my old email address just expired yesterday and I can no longer access it, so if there is/was a different place to direct that to I can longer do that.
That is one reason why I want to be able edit all those shows...so I can update my email in the "taped by" section.

If someone is able to help out it would be greatly appreciated.

Try emailing etree AT instead of iasupport AT - the iasupport account isn't monitored as closely...

Thanks greenone, however as of yesterday I can longer email from my old address, I can't even access it...is there is a way to alert someone to maybe check the iasupport address for the 2 emails I did make from my old one?

If you all need some further verification that they are in fact my uploads...let me know and I can p.m. you through TS, where I still run with a very similar username as my previous one here, and can provide you with more info in private to get this resolved.
Thanks
